Handsome Jay wants you to be his people!

Jay is a real sweetie. He politely asks for petting by leaning against you. He is very smart and has been trained to sit and be calm before going out a door, while putting his leash on, or while waiting for you to fix his dinner.

Jay is housetrained and sleeps all night on his bed. Besides eating, chasing squirrels in the back yard is his favorite activity! He also loves to play tug-o-war with a rope toy. Jay needs to be the #1 in your life. He prefers to be the solo pup in an adult-only house, and would also love slow introductions to strangers.

If Jay feels calm in your environment, you will be rewarded with a smart, loving companion!
